In this new roundup of the latest sound effects libraries we have powerful background sounds that will keep your audience suspended in disbelief. We have ambiences of a quiet Canadian city and a huge assortment of room tones, as well as a Stand-Alone version of the very successful Edward Ultimate footstep/clothing/prop engine, and foley sounds of household items being opened and closed.
We also have subtle UI effects created with Tibetan singing bowls, in-your-face impacts that will test your audience’s nerves, and onboard and external sounds of an American tractor. If you are looking for sounds you can interact with, this is your week!
by Articulated Sounds
has the lush, varied sounds of the Montréal cityscape in both stereo and surround. It captures all the chattering, rumbling and movement of a quiet day in la métropole
for room tone-like ambiences that are ready for your soundscape. It features distance crowds in cafes, birds chirping in alleys, and ventilation humming from office buildings, and it also has a series of weather ambiences collected over a period of 15 months with blizzards, wind lightly pushing wind chimes, rain pattering on metal, and more. For immersive, loopable urban sound beds that can easily be placed in your project, check out 'Quiet Streets'
is a bombastic and cinematic experience that will help you twist the minds of your audience.

has the collection to do it.

Open & Close
'Open & Close'
is a collection of items that withhold you from access with their simple mechanics. It includes the obvious objects that open and close like car doors, glass jars, trash cans, liquor bottles and cardboard boxes, but it also contains more creative interpretations of the movement with sounds of mechanical pens, umbrellas, CD drives, books, locks, zippers, and SD card slots. It is quite the extensive collection of household items that focuses on variations of these two actions! For over 1000 sounds of opening and closing, check out 'Open & Close'

is here for you. This library captures this powerful and compact vehicle from the inside and outside as it rolls over the terrain. It features 4-channel recordings of the engine, exhaust, and backside, allowing you to easily transition from sound to sound in an interactive environment. You also receive passbys, various gears, door foley, idling and more, all at 96 kHz. If you have scenes that take place on a construction vehicle, give 'Massey-Ferguson 3060E'
